    Review by 'ackvil' on item 'Uomo da Vinci 290 Silvertip Brush'

    After using this brush a number of times I realize how unappreciated it is on B&B. I have had this brush a number of years and have rarely seen it used by others. It fits perfectly in your hands and the brush is very dense. The brush has zero scritch.

    Uomo da Vinci 290 Silvertip Brush

    I have had the da Vinci 290 for several years now. Every time I use it I am amazed at the quality of the construction and how well it makes lather and how luxurious it feels on my face and head. It has never shed a hair and after years of use looks as good as when I purchased it. The knot is...

    Review by '' on item 'Gem Featherweight'

    When I first got this razor, I said to myself it looked like a toy with its "plastic-like" handle. However, looks can be deceiving so I tried the razor with a Walgreen's GEM blade in it and was blown away. A very close, smooth shave. In fact, this is one of the few razors that gave me a BBS...

    Review by '' on item 'Acca Kappa 1869'

    I agree with everything above. An incredibly smooth shave. It was worth the long wait to get this superior product.

    Review by '' on item 'Merkur Progress'

    I have been using my modified Progress (thank you Eric) for a few months now. The modifications have made what was once a good razor an excellent one. It is now my number 1 razor. In fact, I like it so much I ordered another one, this time XL, and had it shipped to Eric for modification...

    Review by '' on item 'Personna Medical Prep Blade'

    I have been a big fan of the Gillette Russian Yellows and Personnas Reds. I have tried over 20 different DE razor blades but nothing I have tried compares to these blades: they have given me the closest, long lasting, and smoothest shaves ever. The blades come in blue packaging. If you...

    Review by '' on item 'Crystal (Israel) DE Blades'

    This is one blade that disappoints me. I can only get two shaves with it. Yes it is cheap but two shaves is not very much. Here are more detailed comments. Price: hard to beat - plus it is readily available. Quality: There are better and worse - so a little above average. Sharpness: A...

    Review by '' on item 'Truefitt and Hill Pre-shave Oil'

    Yes, it is expensive - but when applied sparingly to a wet face, it lasts a VERY long time. In fact, I still have 1/3 left in a bottle that I have used for over a year. After a hot towel and splashing water on my face, a massage a few drops onto my beard. I then lather up and shave. I...

    Review by '' on item 'Trumpers Almond Shaving Soap'

    I have found this to be an excellent soap for sensitivity skins. The aroma is gentle but pleasing to me. Like almost all GFT soaps, it provides a wonderful, rich, moist lather. The only con is that is expensive.

    Review by '' on item 'Bolzano Superinox Inossidabile'

    Tried Bolzano for the first time today. What a fantastic shave. Smooth and very close with no irritation, cuts, or nicks. So far, I would rate this one as one of the best.
